About Me


Authenticity...within myself, to others and in my experiences


Hmm, what would my friends say...I might suggest they would say that I am friendly, easy to get along with, love people and animals, have many convictions, am kind and caring (then again all of those things might just be my projections of what those friends would say as those are the things I might want them to say...) (but actually I think those things are what they would say)!

I am a vegetarian as I just can't justify eating animals when I have other options.

I particularly love good pints and good conversation, especially philosophical/spiritual ones. I long to connect with people.


Strength of character guiding my actions to be as authentic as possible.

Think well, consider others, tread lightly, smile often, laugh lots, live well.

I stand strong for what I believe in, I live my values and try to be consistent. I am a vegetarian.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am currently travelling and looking for places to coach surf. As soon as the summer is over I shall return home and open up my place to other coach surfers.


This is my first time...I shall report back with further details...


I love nutrition and healthy eating, especially sharing good food with friends. I also love sharing nutrition knowledge with others. Other than good times and good food with friends I have a strong passion to live responsibly and wisely, which translates in to strong animal rights convictions and a love of sustainability, especially with building and growing food. I love permaculture and would like spend more time incorporating it in to various parts of my life. I'm very much interested in the idea of sovereignty, living completely off the grid, self-sustainability and oh I can't forget hacky-sacking!

I'm a dedicated activist though lately my action has been put on the backburner for my studies but I live strongly with wanting to make a positive impact on the planet and with people. That could definitely be a philosophy of mine!

Music, Movies, and Books

hmm...Ani Difranco and Hawksley Workman have inspired me musically more than others. My partner introduced me to Jeanette Winterson and her books are amazing. I prefer quirky, unique movies or philosophical type movies, especially good documentaries. Some of my favourite movies are Waking Life, The Godfather (all of them!), The Devil's Advocate and The Future.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The first time I saw the ballet with a very special person I know. The experience was incredible, everything about it was beautiful.

Tofino, surfing and seeing the ocean for the first time.

Ani Difranco, live, for the first time...and the seventh time...
